On the 8 year anniversary of Aaliyah’s death, JoJo posted messages to her Twitter followers (@JoJoistheway) about the R&B star. JoJo writes:
I cannot believe that it was eight years ago that Aaliyah and her crew including my manager’s best friend, Gina, passed away.
Cherish every moment with those you love. Aaliyah was an exceptional talent and young woman and I wish I had had the privlege to have known her. God bless.
